Hip-Hop Reacts to President Trump Rescinding Offer for Stephen Curry to Visit the White House
President Donald Trump continues to prove that he might be one of the most petty politicians in history. After making controversial comments about the NFL, POTUS recently rescinded the offer for Steph Curry and the NBA champion, Golden State Warriors to visit the White House after Curry said he didn't want to go in a recent interview.
Going on one of his seemingly weekly Twitter tirades, Trump snapped, "Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!"
LeBron James quickly came to the defense of his fellow NBA All-Star tweeting, "U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!"
The Golden State organization released a statement in response to Trump's Twitter fit: "We believe there is nothing more American than our citizens having the right to express themselves freely on matters important to them. We're disappointed that we did not have an opportunity during this process to share our views or have open dialogue on issues impacting our communities that we felt would be important to raise," the statement said. "In lieu of a visit to the White House, we have decided that we'll constructively use our trip to the nation's capital in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion -- the values that we embrace as an organization."
The hip-hop community has been quick to clown the reality show star turned president. Celebs from Chance The Rapper, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Talib Kweli and more have all hopped on social media to offer their thoughts on the situation.
